My wife and I were almost thinking of going to the event this year, and then I remembered that it's a censored/boring/sjw-shitshow and it only would have been worthwhile going many years ago

Yes, tomorrow (12 hours from right now)

Yeah.... it's become a progressively worse shitshow.... But, that's the state of the world we live in now. Could definitely do with less alphabet agenda and just run the games. And less incredibly depressing donation messages (holy ***).

"hey gramma just died while i was typing this, she doesn't need this $100 anymore" (P.S. kill the animals)
... Can... you don't?

i'm happy that the raise money for charity part is doing well, but the watching cool speedruns with goofy runners and wacky twitch chat is definitely missed.

A lot of the changes are because they went from just giving money to the charity afterwards to officially teaming up with the charity and having to be nice for the cameras.

But yes also dumb agendas that don't belong.

What's the point of watching something that has strayed so far from what it originally was?

I usually watch a random game I enjoy every year since the any % era started but I don't even remember doing that last year. They've completely lost touch.

there has also been drama with certain individuals, and the event hasn't even started yet

they've also added pronouns to the stream overlay and a GDQtrans emote.

Lol really? I haven't seen any drama as I don't follow those people, I guess I'm lucky.

Video games stopped being enough about 10 years ago, sexuality is more important to them.

The constant orb, honk, <musical chyme when you get items in metroid> WAHH, hype, moon get, star, all that ***does get old... it's funny for a couple minutes they just overdo it.

So far though all the alphabet agenda stuff has been nonexistant, not too bad. They aren't really stressing the pronouns, they're just playing the games.

Anti-SJW's: Well, how was I supposed to know what they identify as?!

Event: Provide identification in a completely non-intrusive way.

Anti-SJW's: oh my god, *** SJW's shoving their agenda down my throat!

Video games. That's what the event is about, you haven't mentioned it.

See the problem? Video games. That's all that you should spew, video games. Video games. Speed run of what? Video games. What are we watching? Video games. What are we here for? Video games.

Video, ***, games.

Sounds good, I'll give it a try then. I don't really mind the memes and stuff, it's supposed to be full of people who can't behave socially so it only makes sense that people behave that way, imo.

except that the people DOING the runs have always been an important part of this, otherwise they'd have only a screen showing said video games, zero commentary, zero mention of who is running what, etc. I have no understanding why everyone's panties are in a bunch over something that is unobtrusive and likely to counter with "it doesn't affect me." if it truly matters so little, there wouldn't be so much bitching.

You have no understanding because you still haven't bothered reading the post you quoted. The answer is inside, somewhere, probably well hidden (try the spoiler, it might be in there, too).

oh I read your post. obviously, you did not read mine, as it takes yours into account, and offers a rebuttal. again, if VIDEO GAMES was all that mattered, they would not tell you who was running. if VIDEO GAMES was all that mattered there would be no commentary. if VIDEO GAMES was all that mattered there would have been zero focus on the runners from the start. so, what we can infer here, is that a preferred pronouns section that takes up almost no screen real estate really bothers you that much because VIDEO GAMES.

The issue most people have is that on this ever-rapidly progressing down hill spiral of intelligence we're witnessing... At some point enough has to be enough. This pronoun nonsense is close to the epitome of idiocy.

Or can we just focus on VIDEO GAMES and leave the right/left leaning *** outside.

As every year this thread devolves into people getting mad at pronouns or some made up sjw ***for no reason. For the 100th time, no one is forcing you to watch or participate. For the 100th time no one gives a ***that you're mad. Stay out of this thread if you hate gdq or what has become of it. The real idiocy is actually complaining about ***that bothers you so much about gdq on ffxiah rather than complaining to them so they might change it.

Real winner of the most retarded sentence of this very young year. 50% of the entertainment of gdq is commentary explaining the game and how it broke.

you do realize that this was to refute the fallacious claim that "the ONLY thing that matters is the video games," and that GDQ has just as much to do with the runners themselves as well as the greater speedrunning community, yes?

The actual original thing GDQ was built on was a bunch of friends playing videogames together for charity. With a 50:50 game:runner/couch screen share.

It's literally never been JUST about the video games.

Family event, most places don't allow those kind of names in general. It's not a GDQ specific issue, it's an immaturity issue.

Quote:
GDQ can’t display the username ‘tomatoanus’ so I came up with ‘tomatoangus’ which they approved. My Twitch info will not be displayed on stream as I will continue to go by ‘tomatoanus’ on those sites, which is something I completely understand. GDQ was super transparent about the whole thing and communicated very clearly and quickly.

There have been a couple other runners in the past who have been accepted with suspect usernames and they’ve been asked to run with a different name at the event. An example of this is Breastickle running as ‘BT’ at AGDQ 2018
